18850. Vacco v. Quill 521 u.s. 616 (1997): Assisted Suicide. This paper provides an overview and analysis of this landmark U.S. Supreme Court case which held that New York’s statute banning assisted suicide was in compliance with the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. The analysis considers the Court’s rationale, and looks at assisted suicide laws in other jurisdictions, notably, the State of Oregon (where physician assisted suicide is legal). The analysis also briefly considers the ethical, medical, and political issues involved in assisted suicide and patients’ right to self-determination. TAGS: assisted suicide, equal protection, state’s rights, fourteenth amendment, dying patients’ rights, US supreme court ruling. APA Style. 7 pages, 22 footnotes, 9 bibliographic sources. 1,610 words.   $49
